EDIT: Read about the unboxing and my initial impression here. Reading others’ comments will help too.
Yea, I’m gonna start working on this controversial model to get it out of the way. However, I will most likely finish it until after the spring term is over… so mid-late June. Oh yea, and that sword has been beckoning at me for awhile… ^^;
It might look like a lot of parts here but this is actually for the body, tail binder and shoulders combined. While it certainly has details near MG level, the assembly is definitely HG…
It is a bit difficult detailing the panel lines because they are so deep and narrow in some spots. Might need to just flow ink into them then flush it with the Gundam eraser to smooth it. I don’t know… we’ll see.
